More energy is encapsulated in every drop of good spring water than an average-sized power station is presently able to produce - Viktor Schauberger (1885-1958) WATER - all life depends upon it. Yet how often do we stop to consider it true significance, its essential nature? Viktor Schauberger was a pioneering genius who combined keen observation of Nature with intuitive brilliance and a sharp engineer's brain. He made a lifelong study of water - from mountain streams to river flows and from domestic supplies to advanced hydraulics - developing profound and radical theories about its inherent energies, which earned him the name of 'The Water Wizard'. According to Schauberger, water is akin to blood in the human body - the most important life-giving and energy-empowering, substance on the planet. Yet, with incorrect, ignorant handling, it becomes diseased, affecting human, animal and vegetable life alike, causing physical decay and, in the case of people, their moral, mental and spiritual deterioration as well. Schauberger was a fearless exponent of natural energy and a fascinating polemicist, revelling in doing battle with contemporary orthodox scientists. Sadly, the same extractive and water management policies which brought devastation and widespread pollution in his day have even greater consequences today. Themes addressed include: - The natural pulsation of water and how to maintain it - How minute differences in temperature affect the natural function of water in the earth, in plants and in rivers. - How to regulate rivers without damaging their vitality and health - The natural conversion of sea-water into fresh water - The consequences of sterilisation and chlorination of water The 'Eco-Technology' series, in four volumes of which this is the first, makes available for the first time Victor Schauberger's original writings and passionate debates.
